Hawpe has a laser cannon arm.

I'm hoping that Hawpe and Baker go to the D-Rays for Baldelli ;-D


That wouldnt happen, theyre trying to clear their OF, why would they add another


Cause Baldelli could be an allstar every year. By dropping 2 OF's and picking up one you have less OF's then when you started




I imagine Ryan was saying the Drays would not do that deal because it would not help their outfield situation out any. ;-)

Baker was originally a 3B, but he was moved to the OF with the logjam at 3B. He can still play at third.

Baker will play when a lefty is on the mound.

The Rays need pitching, not Inf or OF Rocco probably won't be traded it looks Like Upton is going to be the one that is moved

Jeff Francouer would own Brad Hawpe.

The Hirsh/Tavares/Jennings deal basically sealed his fate. The Rockies were at one point trying to deal Hawpe. I'm not sure if they still have interest in doing so, but if something did happen Baker would def. be the first to take over his spot. He will most likely be a huge asset to their team coming off the bench because he can just flat out rake. :-D
